Microsoft’s New Hub Keyboard for Android Released
Microsoft has released a new android-exclusive project called Hub Keyboard. The third-party keyboard app for Android makes it easier – sending and sharing files and contact information, copying and pasting recent items; and instantly translating part of messages.
The keyboard has four main functions and will appeal to users of Office 365. The app description on Play Store read thus;
Isn’t it painful to switch between apps just to complete your routine on-the-go tasks? Hub Keyboard, a Microsoft Garage project, lets you stay in context by bringing information from different services to your fingertips and help complete your tasks faster.
Sign in with your Office 365 work or school account to unlock access to more information. Use Hub Keyboard when you need:
- Clipboard: Easily insert one of your recently copied items
- Documents: Grab and share URLs of Office 365 documents in OneDrive and SharePoint
- Contacts: Share information of a contact from your phone or your Office 365 account
- Translate: Translate what you are writing to another language
Available in English for the U.S. market. We are working on supporting more languages and countries!
Microsoft’s Hub Keyboard for Android joins the long list of apps from Microsoft’s Garage Projects along with Sprightly and Kaizala which both went official this week.
Sprightly is an app for creating pro-grade e-cards, price lists, catalogs and flyers for businesses. These creations can now be shared with customers and on social media. Kaizala on the other hand, gets the work done by tracking bills, resources (people, time & money), jobs, locations and much more.
